Interesting traits have been found in naked mole-rats, which enable them to easily survive in low-oxygen situations, and even upto 18 minutes with no oxygen at all:

Now that might be a useful trait for a creature to have on Mars. It's at least very interesting that Nature has evolved such a backup pathway in animals.
